Improvements needed to image frame fitting

Recommended Posts

I work a lot with product catalogues and I think the image frame options need some work. I'm missing these options from my current tool:

  • Fill Frame Proportionally
  • Fit Image proportionally
  • Fit frame to content
  • Fit content to frame
  • Centre content

The image frame fitting property must be possible to assign to an element style.

The content commands are already available:

Fill Frame Proportionally = Scale to Max Fit
Fit Image proportionally = Scale to Min Fit
Centre content = set Anchor point to center

Menu Picture Frame Properties:

Concerning the frame commands may be Align + Constrains do a workaround?

(unfortunately I did not understand yet how they influence each other and/or the objects. To me they often do nothing or sth totally unexpected yet)

Hi Thomaso! :) Thanks for your reply. I'm attaching a screenshot of how the image frame fitting works and looks like. 

The fitting capability is there, and it behaves quite nicely. Two missing is Fit frame to image and centre image in frame. 

I would also like to be able to access Fitting options through the right-click menu.

missing is (...) centre image in frame. 

I guess it's there: in the Picture Properties > Anchor section: tap the center point to make the content jump to the center of its frame, regardless of the contents size.

Also, furthermore, besides align and constraint, the Picture Frame Tool does sth to size and proportions (which I unfortunately did not understand yet, too).

Last but not least: if you double-tap the blue dots in the middle of a picture frames edges the frame size changes.
(To me always and only to square proportions –  I might not have this experienced enough)
